Lennon back in squad.

Hooray! Width returns to the Tottenham Hotspur midfield although I would be suprised if Lennon starts tomorrow. But having him able to come on and attack a tired full back will definetly get O'Neill thinking hard and will give us more options as we take on unbeaten Villa tomorrow. It really goes to show what a dreary fool O'Leary was at Villa with the turn around Villa have seen this season. However, all bubbles burst (ask Portsmouth) and Villa's will soon enough. Their squad is too small for them to mount a realistic European challenge and will probably finish mid table. However, this will be a great improvement on a fight with relegation they would have faced if O'Dreary had stayed.

It is also about time our away record began to improve. Having such an appalling away record for years it was refreshing to see us starting to pick up more points and was one of the main reasons we finished fifth last year. If we want to taste European football again via the league then we have to start picking up away points and I can see us taking at least a point tomorrow.

Further good news has come out of Spurs with the news that Chimbonda should be fit along with King. Gardner is back in the squad as well providing further back up to Dawson and Davenport. Lee is injured so Benny Boy will play left back. Mido is a doubt so expect Berbatov to start alongside Defoe who has recovered from a knock picked up while on interational duty.

great news, but cant see lennon starting. if he's part of the 16, i guess he may come on for last 20 minutes depending on the score and the way things are going. he's obviously not match fit, so no point risking a longer term injury by rushing him back.

if he's fit, expect king to start and jol to start with the same team that put pompey so magnificently to the sword.

i hope the words that jol and comelli had with zokora this week were : no more cheating !!
